This book will focus on the influence of big data analytics, artificial intelligence, as well as, tools, methods, and techniques for knowledge sharing processes in virtual organizations. Knowledge management encompasses various research disciplines ranging from economics, management science, organizational theory, strategic management, human-resources management, information science, knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence, to cognitive science. Knowledge in its pure state is tacit in nature-difficult to formalize and communicate-but can be converted into codified form and shared through both social interactions and the use of IT-based applications and systems. However, Information Technology has proven to be effective tool for supporting the knowledge management life cycle such as capturing, storage, sharing, transferring and even application of knowledge. With the use of IT, knowledge can be converted into data for informed and better decision making by management. However, even though there seems to be considerable synergies between the resulting huge data and the convertible knowledge, there is still a debate on how the increasing amount of data captured by corporations could improve decision-making and foster innovation through effective knowledge sharing practices. Organizations are therefore exploring new knowledge sharing tools, methods, and processes within the broader field of analytics for ensuring continuous development and organizational performance. Meanwhile, organizations, including governments, industries, and academia are becoming more global and losing boundaries, and therefore they can no longer be defined by the traditional horizontal-vertical or external hierarchical predefined structure. Consequently, new organizational forms emerge which relies largely on networking and collaborations through the use of Internet technologies for knowledge flow. Hence a book, which analyzes this trend is timely and would help organizations to strategize themselves on how to use these technologies to effectively manage their intellectual capabilities.
This comprehensive and timely publication aims to be an essential reference source, building on the available literature in the field of knowledge management while providing for further research opportunities in this dynamic field. It is hoped that this text will provide the resources necessary for policymakers, academics, researchers, International Governmental organizations, etc, identify current challenges and solutions towards social inclusion with respect to gender.
Policy makers, academicians, researchers, advanced-level students, technology developers, and government officials will find this text useful in furthering their research exposure to current gender-related issues hampering social inclusion enabled by ICTs.
